Bandai Namco has confirmed that a new Little Nightmares game is coming to iOS later this year.
The wonderfully named Very Little Nightmares is a new prequel to Tarsier Studio’s 2017’s spooky puzzle adventure, Little Nightmares. The game is being developed by Barcelona-based Alike Studio, creators of the acclaimed Love You To Bits and Bring You Home.
The new game features an isometric design and an updated art-style that Bandai Namco say has been specifically designed for mobile devices. Based on the teaser trailer, it retains the original’s charm, while effectively translating the experience to a portrait display.
Very Little Nightmares serves as prequel to Tarsier’s original, a game that we called “transient, vague, and awash with macabre sights and sounds.” The story once again follows the exploits of rain-coated protagonist, Six, as she tries to escape a mysterious mansion. The story will reveal more about The Nest, and will introduce new enemies, and some friendly beings called the Nomes.
Take a brief look at the game in action.
Players can register their interest ahead of the game’s release at the official Very Little Nightmares website.
